Ladies iron handbag bull leather
According to a classic doctor's bag Hammann manufactures this ladies handbag - in the same material opulence as our Weekender from cognac-colored bull leather and sheepskin lining. In this design you get the handbag only at Manufactum.
Primadonna assoluta. Without airs and graces
To call her the little sister of our weekender made of bull leather would not do justice to this handbag, as to reserve it only for the ladies. Because the form after like earlier doctor's bags designed, they can really wear each*r. Like the travel bags of this series by Franz Hammann, it is designed for stability, durability and functionality. The Feintäschnerei manufactures it especially for us in this configuration and size: from the best bull hides of southern German and Austrian origin, which are vegetable-tanned and aniline-dyed in Italy. The color pigments penetrate deep into the leather, so that the natural surface is preserved and a beautiful patina can form over time. The body is worked with neatly turned edges, open leather edges are carefully smoothed, dyed and waxed. The handles, lined with cotton wicking cord, fit comfortably in the hand, and the removable strap allows the handbag to be worn over the shoulder or crossbody if necessary.
As with the doctor's bags that were once common in Germany, the handbag has concealed bows (old Italian models, for example, have visible metal bows on the outside), allowing it to open wide across its entire width. It is closed by means of a wide zipper, which with 12 mm wide teeth is almost an exceptional piece itself. It comes from an Italian company that manufactures components for military and geological outfitters. Polished teeth ensure that it is very smooth and poses no threat to delicate fabrics. Inside, the bag is lined with soft, natural-colored sheepskin, which is also used for the built-in pen and slip pockets. A zippered pocket on the outside holds tickets, cards and small items.
Finest Leather Goods by F. Hammann, Offenbach.
The “Fine leather goods factory” Franz Hammann based in Offenbach (one of the German centres of leather goods manufacturing) is one of the oldest leather manufacturers in Germany. The family-owned company has been producing high-quality leather goods and travel accessories for five generations. The Hessian leather goods are as sophisticated as they are durable; some models require the use of old special machines. Hammann has decades-old experience in leather crafts, especially in producing leather bags and cases complete with frames and handles. Precise workmanship and high-quality materials play an even more significant role here than in leather crafts anyway. To ensure the quality of its leather products, Hammann produces at its headquarters (and has done so since 1864) while processing exclusively full-grain leather of European origin. Locks and fittings are made in Germany. Here too, the details make the difference: all locks and fittings are milled from solid brass and alloy steel and get polished by hand. You might recognize the mirror-bright surfaces featuring a shine that “drum-polished sheet metal parts” could never give off.
